Indian teacher’s hand cut off for alleged Mohammed slight

Mon Jul 5, 2010

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, India (AFP) – Two Indian men were arrested on Monday over an attack on a college teacher who had his hand cut off for setting an exam question that allegedly insulted Muslims, police said.

T. J. Joseph, 52, had his right arm severed at the wrist as he was returning home from church with his mother and sister on Sunday, and has since undergone an operation to have the limb sown back on.

Note the passive sentence structure here. Nobody cut off his hand. Mr. Joseph had it severed.

Joseph, a lecturer at a private Christian-run college in the southern state of Kerala, has been on bail since April after being arrested over a question in internal exams that some Muslim groups claimed included an insulting reference to the Prophet Mohammed.

"An eight-member gang blocked his vehicle and chopped off his right arm," B. Sandya, inspector general of the local police told AFP. "It was a planned operation. We suspect a radical Muslim group who targeted him before."

“Radical”? That is pretty harsh language.

Sandya said police had traced the attackers’ vehicle and made two arrests.

Five doctors worked for 16 hours to re-attach Joseph’s hand, but the outcome of the operation was uncertain.

In the Kerala assembly, state home minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan described the attack as "Taliban-type" and "barbaric".

Joseph’s school, Newman College, has declined to reveal the precise nature of the exam question behind the dispute to avoid further inflaming inter-religious tensions.

It won’t help. Some pious Muslims will eventually burn the school down.

They are so ‘religious.’

    A day in the life of a Muslim hating racist!!

    Clearly, NASA involvement would have made an impact in this affair.

    • beautyofreason says:

      Yes, clearly amputating a limb (presumably) with a sharp instrument is a technological step up from stoning someone to death. Time for some self-esteem!

  3. proreason says:

    Who needs teachers anyway? Allah made all the decisions and Mohammed wrote them down 1400 years ago.

  4. Right of the People says:

    Good thing for him the question didn’t have anything to do with sex.

  5. heykev says:

    Would be interesting to actually see what that question was.

    It might have mentioned his penchant for little girls – after all he did “marry” a 6-year-old girl. (for a short insight into the “Wondrous Treatment of Women in Islam” go here: http://www.derafsh-kaviyani.com/english/women1.php

    Or how that lying is fine by Moose Limbs because the Prophet has instructed them to.

    Or perhaps it was about Moose Limb tolerance….which we find here a perfect example. They were tolerant and didn’t kill the infidel for his crime against Allah. They simply cut off his hand.

  6. untrainable says:

    I thought cutting off the hand was for stealing. So if asking a test question is punishable cutting off hands, what do they do when someone does something really bad… like letting a woman drive a car ?

  7. Liberals Demise says:

    I’ll say this for the mooselimb lot…………….they ‘will’ die for their warped religion sooner than later.
    It is just a matter of time before humanity will have enough of this BULLSHIITE and whack the perps!!

    It’s going back to the old time when Christians were prosecuted & killed, and it’s been a growing subliminal approach in the U.S. but with muslim Obama that could change overnight. He has to be impeached. At least Biden went to church for a relatives funeral. He thanked the Catholic priest for allowing him to use the church.
